If you have a fascination for amber you cannot miss this museum. And if you have not a fascination with amber, you will, by the time you leave the museum. There are both natural forms of the fossilised resin and the jewels into which amber is set. Rings necklaces and earrings are beautifully presented. An exhibit at the back demonstrates how amber is cut and processed and extracted. You will see the spectroscope used to test for the quality of this organic jewel. There is also an exploration of what role amber played in Polish history. And of course, you can buy your own jewel for a souvenir.
